If …poesy Could Be Defined… - Poem by Laxman Rao

T's the transcience of a truthful mind
For, its springs with Love & ceases with Love

The dramatization of worthy words
In portraying a thought or a notion

The evocation of innate emotions
Which form their forms on these naked plains

The vision of insight - The prescience of Imagery
In viewing a beauty or weaving a truth

The language of the subconscious mind
Spoken oft from the deep heart core

This to the beauty, beautier than beauty
Is grandeur of worship in glorifying its duty.

Lest, poetry be defined by words
Words would be worthier in a myriad mode.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Lest, poetry be defined by words....Words would be worthier in a myriad mode.

    A beautiful attempt to define poesy. The first line sets the stage. (Report) Reply
